Two full weeks are in the books and there are players still out there who can help your team if you pick them up. We’ll give our usual lineup of three forwards, two defensemen and a goaltender to pick up and we’ll start with Matt Frattin.
It still defies explanation that Frattin has four goals and two assists in five games and is still available in 96 percent of ESPN leagues. Joffrey Lupul will be out a few more weeks with his broken arm and Frattin has performed nicely filling in for him. Frattin has been seen on a third line with Nazem Kadri and Leo Komarov but hasn’t gotten any time on the power play lately which is his lone knock.
Kyle Palmieri of Anaheim (99% available) is also a player to add if you need help on the front end. Palmieri scored twice in the Ducks’ win over Minnesota, tallied again versus the Kings and he is going to be in a position to score more. He’s on a line with Teemu Selanne and Bobby Ryan so he looks to be in line for right place, right time poi...

A puck was shot towards the bench area and Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel had a priceless reaction. I can’t blame him for flinching, it was just the way he went about it that makes this absolutely hysterical. It was like he was completely shocked that he didn’t get hit and wasn’t ready to let his guard down.[The Score]
The Toronto Maple Leafs have had quite a week winning two games and losing a close one on the weekend. After watching these games I realized two things. One, Buffalo’s net minder, Ryan Miller can be beaten, two no matter how hard he tries, Phil Kessel can not seem to score a goal, not even an empty netter. He now has 36 shots on net and no goals to show for it. He did...
But goal waved off after it was reviewed, kicking motion.
added 9:16pm, via the Situation Room Blog at NHL.com,
At 18:44 of the second period in the Hurricanes/Maple Leafs game, video review determined that Toronto forward Tyler Bozak directed the puck into the net with his right skate. According to rule 49.2 "A goal cannot be scored...
Congrats to the Maple Leafs broadcast network for pulling this Staal Brothers (Jordan & Eric) 2, Maple Leafs 1 stunt during last night’s game. The Hurricanes would win, 4-2, but the Leafs shutout the Staal’s in the 3rd period. Some call that a moral victory.
Speaking of hockey, would you buy a soft pretzel shaped like the Stanley Cup? Of course you would. Would you buy...
Before Leaf fans get all over me, let me say that there is nothing wrong with being a complementary player. Every team has and needs them and they can be valuable pieces of the puzzle. When I say complementary player I mean he is a player that needs others to help him get the most [...]The post Is Phil Kessel a complementary (non core) player? appeared first on HockeyAnalysis.com.
The Maple Leafs recalled defenseman Korbinian Holzer on Sunday from the Toronto Marlies and returned winger Ryan Hamilton to the AHL club.
The recall was necessitated by an injury to blueliner Carl Gunnarsson, who took the pre-game skate before the Leafs faced Boston on Saturday, but is now out with an unspecified lower body injury.
The 24 year old native of Munich, Germany...
James Van Riemsdyk scored his fifth and sixth goals of the season Tuesday night, while Korbinian Holzer scored on just the fourth shot of his NHL career, leading the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-2 victory over the slumping Washington Capitals.
Ben Scrivens made 24 saves for the Maple Leafs, who broke a two-game losing streak and maintained their road-ice advantage in the early part...
The Toronto Maple Leafs just can't get the job done at home. It's been a different story on the road.
Toronto looks to match its best road start since 1998-99 on Tuesday night when it faces the slumping Washington Capitals for the second time in less than a week.
After picking up their first home points of the season on Thursday with a 3-2 win over Washington (2-6-1), the...
Sportsnet Ontario flexed their creative muscle during the Carolina Hurricanes / Toronto Maple Leafs game on Monday night. Midway through the second period, Carolina led the Maple Leafs by a score of 2-1 thanks to goals from Jordan Staal and his brother Eric.
As the station prepared to go to break (or returned from break, we're not sure), they opted to run a slightly modified...
Tonight's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs provided the Hurricanes with a chance to get back to .500 and give the team some positive vibes as they continue this long road trip. It looked like they could be in for another long game as Carolina got off to the worst start imaginable in the first 20 minutes. The Canes were stuck in their own zone for about 60% of the frame, couldn...
Carolina Hurricanes at Toronto Maple Leafs
7 p.m., Air Canada Centre
TV: FS-Carolinas, SportsNet-Ontario
Starting this long road trip with a 5-3 loss to an injury-depleted Flyers team on Saturday night probably wasn't what the Hurricanes had in mind, so they will look to turn things around tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs. That loss to the Flyers was yet another...
Michal Neuvirth should get another crack at Toronto on Tuesday (Clydeorama).
The Washington Capitals will welcome the Toronto Maple Leafs to Verizon Center on Tuesday night for a matchup between two struggling teams as Washington once again tries to regain their footing. Coming off a 6-3 humbling at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins Sunday, Washington is 2-6-1 on the season...
